thanks for the info. i think the lanterns class it up a bit....tiki torches are maybe a bit "beach partaaaaaay" but they do look cool. i doubt they would stay lit anyway.

 

so do we have to set up all of this way in advance (even table linens....?) or do we do it when we get there?

i know....the reception costs really jack up the price. but my travel agent said that she has fought and got all her other MP brides their free functions if they book enough rooms EVEN if they never had a contract with MP. here is hoping she does it again for me =)

 

here is the buffet menu she sent me...i think most of it is the same but there are some new things on there like the french and thai...

 

 

question:: i emailed my TA about this but wanted to see if yall knew...does it cost any different to stay in a basic room on sunrise vs nizuk vs grand?? where are yall staying and why?

Reallyhuh.gif that's interesting! can you ask her how? my WC just tried and didn't get it, but if other people have got it before i guess she could keep trying! it'd make ALL the differenece! i don't want the free nights or unlimited events, i just want the cocktail reception and private dinner!

 

oh i'll take a look at those menu's thanks!

 

i don't know abotu room costs, i've put a request for Nizuk side, just because i'ev heard it's slightly quieter.

Hi Ladies-- My wedding coordinator is amazing- How ever if you have to work with anyone besides your wedding coordintor around here be prepared for a MAJOR battle. Tricia's husband has said that they won't budge on anything- I am a ROYAL bitch when I don't get what I want and I won't settle until I do.

WARNING- the passport to savings pass is only given IF you do the 90 minute timeshare pitch tour- if you want it included get it in writing from your wedding coordinator or if it was promised print off what was agreed to. It was the ONLY way that we got it free, but it took me an hour and a half to prove it.

They do a really great job with the free wedding and I am really happy that I choose that package instead and saved the money. I upgraded to a shell and beachy cake, got the horse and carriage and also added the videographer and my total wedding charges was $595! I brought my own petals and a bouquet from Realistic Silk Wedding Flowers, Natural Touch and Silk Bridal Bouquets (people kept asking to smell my bouquet on the plane and customs stopped me 3 times to inform me no flowers can be brought into mexico or out of mexico, but I didn't have a problem with the freeze dried roses- I didn't mention I had them and since they aren't whole flowers I didn't feel the need to tell them about them. I posted photos on facebook so for you facebook users add me so you can see them (just tell me your user name on here in the message so I know who I am approving!) I will report more soon.

Brooke - here's a question for you. i didn't do the group booking thing so don't get any of the freebies, what do you think my chances are of when im getting there trying to barter for a free cocktail hour and private event?

FutureMrsMoulton: You have been such a wealth of information. Thank you sooo much. I am getting married at Sun Palace. I thought the passport savings was standard, 2 years ago it was given to us. We have decided to go with the free ceremony and have a group booking. I hope all goes well. Can't wait to hear (read) more. Have a great time! I am on facebook - I am going to do a friend request! Thanks Again! :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
